Another class was an applique class. I don't like hand stitching, so I'm not doing that one. The last class was a piecing quilt called Gumballs. I combined two colors (instead of leaving mine monochromatic) and came up with [Orange] Crush on Carol Doak [Blue].
In my spare time I worked on a Block of the Month I had been participating in for about a year but hadn't sewn one block yet. It's called Dancing with the Stars. This is the Two-Step and Pablo Doble.
There's another cruise next March. If I'd known about that one I would have waited. This one was great, but that one will be better as all three classes are Paper Piecing Classes - my favorite technique for quilt piecing and you end up with a complete quilt designed by three different quilt teachers.
It was a lot of fun and I got to meet more than 50 other quilters. Many of the quilters I met were from my favorite online group -- the Carol Doak Quilting Group on Yahoo. It was so nice to put faces with peoples names I've chatted with for years.
